    Bent knife, what to do?

    Hi all,

    Have a question about a knife I just got I was hoping you could help me with.

    I'm hoping to leave as many details out of it to keep all parties anonymous.

    So here's the knife



    If you can't see the problem it's bent between knife and handle. For all intents the handle is horizontally straight in the above image.

    What can I do to remedy this myself? Will it just bend back in shape at the handle point?

    I'm not really interested in sending it anywhere as sending it anywhere from Australia is soooo expensive and I could just put up with the kink since the blade portion itself is fine.

    Thanks for taking a look!

    Where are you in Australia? If you are in either Sydney or Melbourne, Leigh and Eddie at Chef's armoury may be of your help. Looks like it could be that the blade didn't go in straight into the handle.

    Just from the pic, not so sure.

    So I had some contact from the vendor within 5mins of posting this thread, which was very impressive.

    Had some pointers on what may have happened and how I might overcome. Basically the handle is a soft wood and in the whole shipping process it had most likely shifted or been affected by heat/vibration.

    Long story short it was suggested a bit of delicate/brute force might help the situation.

    After 5mins:



    Needless to say this is very, very close to being perfectly straight. In fact I'd say it is straight. The desk lines (don't worry, it's not a pine chopping board) make it a little deceptive.

    The blade portion is most definitely straight.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    Well I'm on the Central Coast and work in Sydney so I will keep that in mind if I have troubles in the future; thanks for the tip!

    No, I was pretty nervous during the whole adjustment so it's not really something I want to revisit if it can be helped.
